Ranger (野伏 (レンジャー) ) is a job class that hailed originally from YGGDRASIL.


Like Rogue, Ranger is a class that involves collecting information or committing investigation.[1] For instance, they can scan the grassland around them for possible tracks and other signs of creatures as well as keeping an eye on the forest.[2]

Known Rangers

Abilities and Powers

Rangers possessed a keen sense of hearing, sensing, and perceiving things that normal people cannot do in places like a forest. For that reason, rangers are usually given the role to act as the eyes and ears within a party.[3] Rangers like Lukrut would utilize tools to dig holes on the ground, setting up booby traps for enemies.[4]

Most of the rangers are said to be archers with the capacity to fight in long-ranged combat, using the kind of weapon to shoot objects from a distance away. They have search skills when used to investigate something.[5] Additionally, they had infiltration skills which allowed them to sneak into areas occupied by enemies without getting detected.[6]


  • Invisibility: Makes the user invisible from the naked eye.
  • Sky Eye: A long-range skill that permits its user to watch a scene from afar within two kilometers.[7]
  • Fly: A 3rd tier spell that gives the user the ability to fly.
  • Hawk Eye[8]


  • Lizardmen in the Great Lake had rangers who formed hunting parties to catch fish.[9]
  • According to Maruyama's Tweet on October 14, 2015, ranger skills have a feeling of applying to firearms/projectile weapons/missiles. In other words, ranger skills can be used with anything that propels projectiles.
